How to Connect a Phone Using Bluetooth With a Laptop
By using Bluetooth technology, you can send files from your phone to your PC without the use of wires, SD cards or memory sticks. Many newer laptops have Bluetooth connectivity, but some models do not. You can make these laptops Bluetooth-enabled with the use of an external Bluetooth device called a Bluetooth dongle. This is a USB stick used to enable Bluetooth on your laptop, as long as it's plugged in.
Pairing the Devices
Switch your laptop and cell phone on.
Go to your phone's main menu and enable Bluetooth. Depending on the model of your cell phone, your Bluetooth options may be listed under connections, settings, tools or extras.
Insert the Bluetooth Dongle into the USB port on your laptop. A dialogue bubble will pop up once your computer recognizes the device. Do not close this dialogue bubble until the device has been fully installed. Once it has, you will see the words "Installation Complete."
Go to the Start menu, then select "Control Panel." From here, open up "Network in Internet."
Choose "Set up a Bluetooth-enabled device," then click "Add." After this, select "My device is set up and ready to be found."
Find the name of your phone and click "Next." At this time, you will be asked to give a passkey. The passkey will have been supplied by the manufacturer of your Bluetooth dongle. Enter this same passkey on your cell phone. (You can use the Default code which 0000)
Right-click the file on your computer that you want to send to your phone.
Select "Send To" and then select "Bluetooth Device." A box will pop up asking you to select the name of the device from the list provided. From here, you will select the name of your cell phone.
Click "Next" or "Continue." The file will begin to transfer.
To turn Bluetooth on:
1. Select Menu > Settings > Bluetooth> Enable.
2. Press the navigation key up or down to select On and
press to enable Bluetooth.
To turn Bluetooth off:
1. Select Menu > Settings > Bluetooth> Enable.
2. Press the navigation key up or down to select Off and
press to disable Bluetooth.
PW try these:
Your headset is compatible with any device that is bluetooth enabled. The easiest way to check is your phone manual or the device menu or settings screen of your phone. So if you know the phone supports bluetooth, it is just a matter of enabling it. Hope this helps. Have a great day.
Your Garmin has Bluetooth handsfree activated, it's nothing to do with navigation. All that's happening is that it's sensing that your n97 has Bluetooth turned on and so your Garmin is asking whether you wish to pair the devices.
Paired or not, your Garmin still uses it's own internal GPS navigation and does not utilise the navigation built into your n97.
If you already use your own preferred handsfree device then just go into the Garmin's menu to turn off Bluetooth. If you don't already have handsfree then I strongly suggest that you pair your phone to the Garmin and use the facility to remain safe and legal.
If you wish to disable Bluetooth on the Garmin then on most models, starting from the homepage, you press "tools", "settings", "Bluetooth" and then click on "Bluutooth enabled" and toggle it to "disabled".
I hope that this answers your question, you can let me know by rating my answer. If not then please add a comment instead to more clearly explain what your problem is and I will try again.
